I went there twice and every time it’s full of people! But the waffle are sooo good, crispy, softy and sweet...I loved them! The staff is very friendly but maybe the price pretty high...anyway, I recommend you to try the real waffle here

We stopped in here today for coffee and waffles whilst sightseeing around Brussels. Went upstairs and found that it was pretty quiet. Had a couple of coffees and hot chocolates, and tried their waffles. They were quite ok, although we haven’t had any elsewhere yet,...More

This place waffles are amazing! The only bad thing was the waiting time... The take away would need to be directly to the street, open window... It would be faster and easier to manage the cues... We've ordered some 'gaufre liege' which were just DELICIOUS!...More
